    I had my surgery 7 months ago. Still some swelling and tightness even though I have fairly good range of motion.
    I think I should see Dr Baravarian for a follow up appointment.

    We started in your Santa Barbara office and after I had been seen you closed that office. I live in San Luis Obispo and the drive to Santa Monica for all the app. was very difficult.

    extremely happy with the whole process - very clean surgery, efficient follow-up appointments, foot looks good technically, staff helpful. would absolutely recommend dr. baravarian - have let my PCP know of my experience so she will continue to refer patients to UFAI. physical therapy group across the hall is also fantastic to work with...expected I would hate PT, but am getting a lot more out of it than I thought i would.

    Dr. Baravarian and Dr. Saeedi are the most caring and thoughtful doctors and they email back so quickly! I sincerely appreciate the way they have treated me from pre-surgery to post op! The whole team has been amazing to work with.

    I’ve been hesitant to say this but the morning of my foot surgery. The surgery center staff in BH were acting unprofessional and on their cell phones. Talking and going on the internet. It made me feel frightened prior to the doctor showing up. My bed was just across from their desks and they were young and immature.
    I wanted to say something then for example be quiet! Or your making me nervous but I chose not to as I was worried about having the procedure in the first place.
    When Doctor B arrived, everyone quieted down and acted more professional.
    I’ve been to a lot of surgery centers throughout the years and this experience prior to the doctors arrival scared me and I felt as thought it was a low budget operation center once out of the waiting room.
    This is just my experience I’m sorry to not mention it earlier.
    It has prevented me from recommending the services of UFAI.

    My experience here vs my past experience with a podiatrist/surgeon was night and day. What a fantastic facility with kind, cheerful staff. I hope I never break a bone again but if I did I would love to come back!

    The procedure was quick and effective. Have not yet heard back regarding the results from the path findings.
    I need to follow up, as there may be some side effects from the procedure that can be corrected.
    I prefer to have my statements sent via mail or email and have not yet received the request for payment for the lab and analysis.
    Thank you,
    Li
